eheathIMO doubling your shutter is almost too slow for action, everyone harps about it but I shoot 1/180 when shooting 60p, shooting double your shutter is just the minimum for video. You dont NEED to shoot 1/125 for 60p, period. Hell back in the day when I was first shooting, id do 1/1000 and you cant notice the difference between that and 1/250. Some people prefer the motion blur but sometimes i find doubling to be too slow.I found I liked the look of 180 on the shutter speed when I filmed skate and just normal cinema stuff so i think it'll work good with skiing. I personally could notice the difference in the two videos but that may be I know what to look for in the footage to spot the changes, it makes me come to my point im gonna bring up for this guy below. See below
I used to shoot with a 1.2ND for sunny days, 1/180 shutter and usually f5.6-f8. example:
Without an ND i'll shoot 1/180 and f11-f16. example:
Shooting 5.6 or higher with a wide lens, you focus will nearly be at infinity so everything will be in focus except within 2-3ft in front your lens and at that point with a follow cam you're cutting off heads or feet. This obviously changes if youre shooting longer than 24mm but you'll be in a more controlled setting (like a tripod or hand held) than you would be follow camming.
Hope this helps, feel free to any any other questions.
finnolydorbNot sure if there are any downsides to this but I personally think filming at f22 with a decently high shutter speed (200-400) looks pretty cool.
